Every story must end

  1. Every story has a beginning and an end. My story here on Bukkit is coming to an end. Bukkit has been a big part of my life for almost 2 years now, I have loved the community, the staff and even the people who wanted to kill me. I have loved being part of such a strong place that even in the darkest times we can come out and still continue to grow, help and support others. I was a member for less than a year before becoming a Moderator here on Bukkit and it has been less than a year again that my time of being staff and a member of this fantastic community is coming to an end. This is probably the hardest post I will ever have to write, but its time for a change.

    I have been on Bukkit every single day for 2 years. Even on holiday I made it my duty to come on and spend some time with everyone here and just enjoy myself. This has been harder and harder to do lately. I used to love coming here, I would be on all day and all night then I couldn't wait to come on again. I have been feeling this less and less, it doesn't feel like a hobby or something fun to do. It is feeling like a job, it feels as though I need to force myself on here everyday and try and help people. Note, I said try there because it seems the posts these days need less help but more. Direction. This once very strong community is fading but still hanging on, and I respect every single person and staff member who comes on still. I find myself posting less and coming on less day by day. It just doesn't feel fun anymore, when I come on I get angry if anything. Angry at the fact that it was such a good place, now everyone just seems to be posting things that have been said 1000 times before.

    Am I going to miss the spam, all the posts in the queue and sending goofy resolution messages. Maybe but I know my new story will be just as good! I will always remember my time here on the Bukkit Forums and I know that even without me here everything will run fine and everyone can enjoy their time here. This forum has great staff and a fantastic community. But at last.

    My story must end.

    I want to give a huge thank you to all the Curse staff for having me on the team and for being such fantastic people who we can joke around with and know how to have a laugh.
    And the new Admin @darkValorous

    Thank you to the amazing, fantastic Moderation team. Tim, Cookie, you two were must haves for the staff team and you are just the best people to work with. Good luck here at Bukkit!!

    I also want to give a huge thank you to all you amazing people I have met and talked to in the community. You are all amazing people! Don't let anything get you down, I have loved talking to all of you!
    Special thanks to
    @MrBlackIsBack (I'll see you on CS:GO ;) )
    And so many more of you! You guys are all so amazing!

    And one final thank you to some of the people who even made this forum possible and to what it is today!
    and all the other staff who made Bukkit what it is today.

    This is where my Bukkit story ends and a new story begins. I don't know what exactly I'll be doing after this but I'll still come and visit every so often. Thank you to everyone for making Bukkit so great for me, I have loved being staff and I have loved being a member of this community.

    I guess there's nothing left to say but. Bye!!!

    :'( @bwfcwalshy its very sad to see you go :'( you where indeed a very valuable and pationate staff member in bukkit but mainly an awesome person. Personally you taught me a lot of things, for instance, you helped me improve my english skills significatly, working in groups and also got me on skype! None has ever achived that!

    I will have a hard time getting used to bukkit without you... who will be sending me resolution messages so long that the allerts popup has a scroll bar, who will be here to help me with my "lectures" and who will be the one finding all 'intresting' posts and threads to send me :( We've been through quite some situations in bukkit and it is a hard thing for me to see you go.

    I dont know what else to say, it seems that im in a loss for words at the moment, Well i guess sometimes words are not enough... Wishing you the best, and im sure you will have a bright future.

    P.S. If i could hug you IRL i would, but for now ill hug you over the forums
    **Hugs bwfcwalshy**

    You and @timtower are the only moderators I have ever spoke to on this forum. Why? Not sure, can be because I'm pretty new compared to many. I've become very active, though.

    i understand your decision, i think most of us can relate that Bukkit is a hobby, and when a hobby becomes something you have to force yourself to do, then it isn't worth it anymore :).

    The bukkit community is indeed fading away with a few people still standing strong, i remember back in 2012/2013 that the community was massive! (i had a different account back then). But anyways, what am i even talking about.

    Sad to see you go,
    Even though i don't really know you well.

    I am sorry I only noticed @bwfcwalshy leaving just a few minutes ago on Skype but I had work and well, the Halo 5 Download is blocking my Internet.
    Anyway, I will keep it short:

    I am sad to see you go, it was a lot of fun with you and I think every Staff Team needs a Walshrus.
    But still, have a great time and enjoy life o/

    @bwfcwalshy, We'll miss you, and anyone who has been on this site for a long time understands why you have decided to leave. A lot of the posts recently have been very repetitious or are related to people who refuse to learn Java. It's an unfortunate truth. However, we will all move on to new and better things to come.

    We will all miss you. You're one of the best mods this site has ever had.

    Also, @eyamaz, something has been up with alerts recently. I somehow got the honor of being tagged in this and never received an alert, and this isn't the first time it's happened (Not to get offtopic).

    Even though it seems I am a day late, I am sad to see you go. There will now be one less face on the forums that knows what they're talking about when it comes to Bukkit. May you find an other hobby or project that you can enjoy.

    I may not be very active on the forums anymore and I chose a random day to pop-in only to see you are leaving. I am glad you were here to help take care of a wonderful community that has brought happiness to many and knowledge to many more.

    Offtopic, it shall never again be the same.
    Good game, good run, story's done? Have fun: Hasta la vista, the legend lives on.

    Your words of guidance and clarity helped to lead the entirety of the Bukkit community through trials and trepidation for that much longer, and that was impact we cannot thank you enough for. May those of Bukkit learn from your example so that we may craft long after the Bukkit has been spilt, and may you use Bukkit experience to do great things in the future.

    Moved to Staff Goodbyes Section.

    Forgot about that, been so long since the last Thread in there...

    Anyway, @bwfcwalshy I presume you will be exchanging your green Mod Nameplate for the black Retired Staff one then :(
  26. I'm surprised I don't have it already. You know where to find me if you ever need me. Bye :(
